First of all, it’s worth mentioning there is no pre-load for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on PC via Steam. This is going to sound like a bummer to some, especially as the game’s Steam store page mentions at you’re going to need least 40 GB of available space.
That being said, you can already pre-load LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on PlayStation, Switch, and Xbox consoles. In case you’re curious about the download size on PlayStation, it’s a bit over 38 GB without the day one patch (thanks to @PlayStationSize on Twitter for the details.)
